Required experince????

My question is how do employer's expect an individual in their last year of college or newly graduate have the 2-3 years expertise to work for their company? Graduates spend thousands of dollars each year and after graduation we expect to work in our field of expertise but when looking for a job many qualifications require 2-3 years experience. Can a reputable company please explain the tactic used and hire newly graduates please!!!!

Well for starters a new mom a mom of a toddlers and single get a storage and go in the storage get the food stamps stay away from child support and if you get cash for the baby cool. otherwise keep a PA case go in with a smile and work. Those vouchers are nice but if in 2 years after working if you worked or began working you can penny pinch and save. Not job this is the best place to start. If you smoke the shelter is not for you, you will catch an ACS case to many ill tempered and that's my girl till shit get emotional. Best of Luck!!

Just ask them. Be polite and ask them. Maybe you could start out somewhere else or intern to gain the required experience.

GF I feel ya. Had that same problem so I went to a healthcare agency and applied there. As long as I had all my clinics in tact, they placed me on several positions which built up my experience. Now I am marketable.

INTERNSHIP--Young people so often complain that they are not compensated for working or not enough for an internship when they have one. Getting your foot in the door and letting people see how you work is the key to getting a job. I started as an intern and was offered a job within one week. Substitute teach, until you get what you want. If a school like you, they will ask you to come in every day. Think about this work as seasonal and sign up for camps. Automatically, it tells the interviewer that you are respectable and can pass a rigid background check. Offer yourself up to shadow or Girl Friday, who will do whatever. I told a company that I wanted to build up my freelance. They had some mundane work with some flexible time. Meanwhile, I waited tables at night. I had a reference, if something else came up, but I was working almost fulltime. Fulltime jobs are elusive. Gone are the days when they hired you for life.

I'm not in college yet but I did just graduate high school. For some reason, I've been having trouble looking for jobs because I don't have experience. Where am I supposed to start? It's like nobody want's the fresh meat. I probably don't even belong on this thread but I felt like I had to vent to someone. If there are any suggestions on where I can get employed please help.

You are so right about that I do not have my certification as of yet but can receive within 6 months of being hired as a medical assistant but have the same issue.

This is a conundrum main feature of the job market of the 2000's. I graduated in 2005 and only landed an $8/hour job in a Convergys Corp. cubicle doing accounts management for client Mercedes Benz Financial. There are hourly waged jobs and then there are high paying executive jobs which I was never sure how to enter though my trainer achieved a masters in International Relations and was sent to India on business trips to train in Convergys offices there. Needless to say, I didn't stay with Convergys for it was a hostile toxic cut throat culture of a barrage of coercive threats and little to no benefits on offer. I found teaching English in South Korea a far better gig, but one I didn't want to stay years and years of my life in a strange xenophobic country of conservatives so I quit after 4 years. Today in 2016, I'm working for you guessed it. $8/hour and no benefits...Get a masters or use your inheritance or family love support, if any, to start your own self employment to blaze your trail since jobs just don't cut it. If the job market really was expanding or demanded new graduates, they'd hire you at $40,000 starting salary for cross training employee development, but unfortunately, it's just not reflective of the stock market due to globalization. I wish I had known when I was young, that a skilled trade is better if you don't have money in the family to fall back on or support a self employment start up. A specialized 2 year degree is actually far better than a bachelors unless it's criminal justice or engineering. While a Bachelors of Science in Business or other disciplined gets you in the door of hourly waged jobs, it's just not a great cluckin' deal...
